TP: Paths Of Disharmony by Dayton Ward Review Thread (Spoilers free)

A week before the release date is usually about when these things hit, so fire away!

EDIT: Crap, just saw Nasat's thread. Mods: maybe merge? Sorry!

Got it about a week ago, but probably won't start to read it before the weekend.

So I'm looking at Barnes & Noble looking for the eBook release, and it's saying that it's not available and isn't available for pre-order....do you think that it will be available in eBook format?

Re: Typhon Pact: Paths Of Disharmony Review Thread (spoiler free)

I voted above average and would give the book an 8.5/10. I posted some additional (spoilery) thoughts in the other thread.

I liked this book the most out of the four TP novels and would rank them as follows:
  1. Paths of Disharmony (8.5/10)
  2. Zero Sum Game (8/10)
  3. Rough Beasts of Empire (5/10 (Sisko)), (8.5/10 (Spock))
  4. Seize the Fire (4/10)
'Seize the Fire' was the only book I really didn't like, but as a whole I enjoyed this 'series'.

Re: Typhon Pact: Paths Of Disharmony Review Thread (spoiler free)

I am generally unenthusiastic about relaunch Andorians, so I haven't decided whether or not I want to buy the book immediately or not. Judging from Ward's personal website and running review/commentary on TOS's third season with David Mack, he's an entertaining author...but all the same I hesitate at the 'place order' screen. Without too much detail, does the crew of the Enterprise-E get to shine? I am particularly fond of Chen.

Re: Typhon Pact: Paths Of Disharmony Review Thread (spoiler free)

as Thrawn suggested at the top - maybe it would be better to merge this thread with the "Blues" one?

Are Paths of Disharmony and Rough Beasts of Empire any better than the first two Typhon Pact novels? I found those really underwhelming.

Hmm. Halfway through POD I'd rank them

RBoE
ZSG
POD
STF

But obviously my feelings could change for a book I haven't finished yet.

Regarding Beasts, depending on who you ask, either REALLY YES (I think this) or REALLY NO. Controversial plot choices, to say the least; I loved it.

Can't comment on Paths yet, still reading.

Thanks. Getting a Kindle next weekend and it would seem wrong if the first book I get for it wasn't Star Trek.
